BMI: Your calculated BMI is 26.6. This is a measurement that takes into consideration your height and weight. Ideally it should be between 19-24.99. So you are not obese based on this but somewhat overweight. Get involved in a exercise routine and start including healthy items to your diet( fruits. vegetables, fish and poultry). A consult with a dietitian is also a god idea.
